Holy Shab-e-Qadr, the holiest and most blessed night for Muslims, is being observed across the country on Thursday night with due solemnity and religious fervour.
Muslim devotees are spending the night offering special prayers, recitation from the holy Quran, holding milad mahfil, zikr and other religious rituals at mosques and in their houses.
According to the holy Quran, this is superior to a thousand nights as the Quran was revealed to the greatest Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) on this glorified night to show mankind the path of worldly and eternal emancipation.
President M Abdul Hamid and Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina greeted the countrymen and the Muslim Ummah across the world on the occasion.
Bangladesh Television (BTV), Bangladesh Betar and private TV channels and radio stations are airing special programmes while newspapers published articles, highlighting the significance of the night.
